questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

7 day jr pass

7 Day JR Pass

I plan to take the shinkansen on the 18th October (Sun) from Tokyo to Osaka. I then wish to travel back east and eventually take the sinkansen back to Tokyo on the 25th October (Sun). Does this fit the 7 Day JR Pass? Or is it one too many days?


Hi there,

Technically that would be 8 days. You would have to return on Saterday if you would like to use a 7 day JR Pass for this route.

Hope this helps!
